iPad Air (2013) Review


Apple single-handedly created what we know to be the tablet category. Before the iPhone was even a darling of the world, Steve Jobs had a vision to create a tablet computer. Of course, as we all know now, Jobs decided to put what would eventually...

Apple iPad Air: Lighter and more powerful than ever before


Apple continues to dominate the tablet realm and despite worthy efforts from the Android camp, no one has been able to truly knock them off the pedestal. Rather than just getting a beefed up version of the iPad 4th Gen this year, we got a completely...

The Apple iPad Air starts at Rs 35,900 for the 16GB, Wi-Fi model and we feel this is a bit too much for what’s on offer. The drastic weight loss and new internals aside, we don’t see why someone would buy the Air instead of the 32GB iPad mini with...

Review Apple iPad Air Tablet


Love is in the air. The fifth generation of Apple's big seller is now available for purchase. Finally, the California-based company unveils a thinner device -- and at a height of a mere 7.5 mm (~0.3 inches), it has certainly earned the name "Air". The...

Bright, high-contrast display; Excellent color reproduction; Good touchscreen; High-performance SoC; First-class manufacturing; Very long battery life; Fast browser performance; Fit for VoIP audio/video calls; Very good speakers

which are unfortunately poorly positioned; High surface temperatures under load; No current data transfer standards; No Flash support

Among others, the Apple iPad Air's competitors are the Microsoft Surface 2, Google Nexus 10, Sony Xperia Tablet Z and the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1.

Apple iPad Air review: Thin, light and fast, but expensive


Apple's large-format tablet is thinner, lighter and faster than ever, and delivers good battery life. We'd like to see the biometric home button and a wi-fi upgrade as soon as possible, but it's still a high-quality, if premium-priced, device.

Thin and light ; Classy design ; Fast 64-bit A7/M7 platform ; Excellent LTE frequency band support ; Good battery life

No Touch ID ; No 802.11ac wi-fi or NFC ; Expensive, especially when accessorised for maximum business productivity

Manageability, security and support are a few of the reasons why BlackBerry® Enterprise Service 10 is such a powerful Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) solution. Check out this paper to learn more.

Apple iPad Air review: Sun and heir


It's been tempting lately to conclude that Apple doesn't have it anymore, and tablets in particular is where Cupertino does need to silence the prophets of doom and gloom after an iPad 4 that was more like a 3.1 and a mini that should've had a retina...

9.7" LED-backlit IPS LCD touchscreen, 1536 x 2048 pixels, ~ 264 ppi; scratch-resistant, oleophobic coating ; Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n connectivity with MIMO dual antennas ; LTE connectivity (data only) ; GPS with A-GPS and GLONASS support (for the Cellular...

Non expandable memory ; Price of storage climbs steeply, and storage is largely overpriced ; Tied into iTunes for uploading most of the content ; iOS 7 could've made better use of the bigger screen ; No standard USB port ; No GPS receiver in the...

iPad Air review: The best tablet gets better


It's lighter, thinner, and twice as fast as the previous full-size iPad. What's not to like?

Ten hours of battery life ; Twice as fast as fourth-generation iPad ; Light and thin

Still too big for long-term one-handed use ; No Touch ID

Air Worthy


The iPad Air features an impressively slender form factor and, thanks largely to its A7 processor and optimizations in iOS 7, it still manages to perform twice as fast and deliver just as much battery life as its predecessor.

Incredibly lightweight with a super-slim, redesigned form factor. A7 chip, in addition to helping provide an impressive 10-plus hours of battery life, offers superb overall performance whether you’re surfing the web or streaming media. 9.7-inch, 2048 x...

No TouchID, just a regular old home button. Despite upgrading to stereo speakers — audio separation remains poor. 5-megapixel rear-facing shooter could use an update

Apple iPad Air


The iPad Air is Apple's attempt to make the tablet disappear. The result is an unusually slim, well-built platform for the best array of apps in the business.

Impressively slim and light. Fast. Very good camera. Top-notch app selection. LTE version works with every U.S. carrier

Expensive. Pages and Numbers, while free, don't measure up to Microsoft Office for productivity

Slimmer, lighter, and faster than last year's model, Apple's iPad Air ($499-$929) is the best tablet for the most people. It's a full-fledged computer that's now so thin and light that you won't even notice it's in your bag. Like every iPad before it,...

Apple iPad Air


The iPad Air's jaw-droppingly compact design, faster performance and excellent endurance -- combined with the best app selection -- make this the tablet to beat.

Wonderfully light and thin design; Fast and smooth performance; Excellent Retina Display; Long battery life; iLife and iWork apps included

Limited multitasking capability; Back can run warm

At just over 1 pound, not only is the Apple iPad Air lighter than the competition, but it outshines, outperforms and lasts longer than similarly priced tablets. Plus, the Retina display looks as crisp as ever, and you get valuable productivity and...
